Here are some key take-away's I had: 1.  Healing is possible - even with extreme trauma 2. Healing takes courage...but on the other side, is FREEDOM 3.  The coping skills we use to hide and operate with the pain we carry also provide us with the strength we need to heal. 4.  The only way to overcome is to go through. Unpack your backpack of pain/hurt.   5.  Take the first step:  Tell someone who is safe and has earned the right to hear your story or begin by writing your story out. Anna says that it's important to get the story outside of you so you can look at it differently.  >>Anna wants to know what impacted you from this podcast.  She challenged you to take a screenshot and tell her on FB or IG what you learned..
